Ford Mondeo 2.0 Si
This car was a good workhorse and is still going strong to this day with few problems over the years. Well over 100 thousand miles.
Rover 800 Vitesse Turbo Sport
This was a big and fast car. With 200bhp you would imagine it would not be that fast for such a large car. However it would cruise up to 150mph with ease. 0-60 was also despatched in just over 7 seconds. It turned out though that perhaps this was a bit much for the gearbox with 3 replacements required within the year thanks to Rover FOC.
Fiat Bravo HGT
When I bought this car everybody said don't buy a Fiat the electrics are awfull. So after 2 days when all the lights failed I did feel a bit of a mug. However it was just a small problem and it never failed again. Well not the electrics anyway. Great little hatch with a fair amount of punch (155bhp was lots then).

Vauxhall Vectra 2.5 GSI
1st Gear, 2nd Gear, 3rd Gear nope that must be 5th oh no that is third!! I think the engineers took a week off when selecting ratios and mixed up 3rd and 5th. A good car ruined by the most ridiculous ratios known to man. Nice cup holders though.
Evo 6 Tommi Makinen
Nothing can ever beat the thrill factor of the Evo. Its raw power in any gear at any speed was immense. I dream of the day when we can meet again. No Evo will bring such raw stomach churning performance again judging by the 7 and 8.
|(2001 - 2002)|
Cheap as chips. But this bargain was a fantastic drive with a tendency to slide its back end into a drift on demand. Great fun and for under 10k what else could provide such entertainment.

Volkswagen Passat 2.8 V6 Syncro
Oops this has to have been an all time mistake. Comfy, sat nav, Biscuit interior and me 55 years old. Nope not yet so a month of relaxation in the granddad mobile was plenty for me. Goodbye and good riddance.
|(April 2002 - March 2003)|
Renault Clio V6
Catch me if you can back end which spends more time trying to get along side the driver. Great car. Practical NO Safe NO Fun YES. However just lacking a bit of power at times (I am sure that can be fixed).
